The CA’ASI is hosting the Young Architects in Latin America exhibit, of 12 events held in conjunction with the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, the Biennale di Venezia from May 26 to November 25, 2018.
Following on the resounding success of the Nouvelle Architecture Chinoise edition in 2010, the Young Arab Architects in 2012 and Young Architects in Africa in 2014, Architecture-Studio has organized a competition this year for Young Architects in Latin America as a vehicle for highlighting the creativity of architecture in Latin America and to guide the up and coming generation of architects in their efforts to gain international recognition.

For this occasion, the CA’ASI is opening its doors to young architects with a singular view on the theme of Freespace for the 2018 edition.

The international jury met on Friday 6 April to study 201 projects submitted by participants originating from 18 Latin American countries. The jury focused in particular on their social, environmental and participative approach to the projects, exemplary work revealing the Latin American way of thinking.
